in afghanistan at the time. that nonfactual story from michele bachmann about the cost of obama's trip which started by by an unnamed source on an india news website and got into the either there. we can't talk about conspiracy theories without rush limbaugh. first day of the republican convention was canceled due to hurricane isaac. rush floated the idea that president obama was somehow involved with the weather reports showing that tampa might get hit. >> got a hurricane coming. the national hurricane center which is a government agency, is very hopeful that the hurricane gets near tampa. the national hurricane center is obama. it's the national weather service. part of the commerce department. it's obama. i can see obama sending fema in advance of the hurricane hitting tampa so that the republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in tampa, a bunch of rv's and stuff. make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there. >> was he laughing at his own b.s. there? did you ever think that rush limbaugh would us of a skewed weather report? yeah actually. next, here g

to be putting obama care on the table. there's no question in my mind. >> how does that make sense, michelle? >> well, it makes sense because eric cantor's team lost the election and their hopes of repealing obama care is pretty much shot. so their last chance at undermining a bill that they all hate and campaigned on repealing is to try and make it look like the only thing reasonable for the defendant to do is to throw it in the mix. of course, that's not true. they are just grasping at last straws here. >> can i make a moment on that? >> yes. go ahead. >> if i were president obama and i were sitting in that room and negotiating with these members and someone brought up -- if eric cantor brought up putting affordable care act on the table, i would be well within my rights to stand up and walk out of that room. that is absolutely ridiculous. i totally agree everything should be on the table when it comes to fiscal policy but this election was an entorsment of the affordable care act. these guys, i think, are really nuts to try to raise that as an issue in this context. >> well, the other par

is about more than just obama. it's about your mama. joining me now is journalist and former judge, katherine cryer and michelle cottle. thank you all for being here. >> thank you, reverend. >> michelle, let me go to you first. this is no normal election. isn't this a huge decision point for this country? >> it is. we're always talking about this is the most important election in our history but there's at least one item on the table and that's the health care plan and the fate of it is going to depend heavily on who ends up in the white house and we've talked about elections are big ideas and you have big choices to make and i think it's notable that mitt romney has spent a great deal of time trying to cover up what his big ideas are, trying to align the differences and step away from the severe conservatism he was peddling earlier towards a more moderate version where he wouldn't dream of dealing with abortion legislation or giving tax breaks to the wealthy, that sort of thing. >> yeah. but, dana, they have supported massive cuts, to her point, cuts to government despite taking a
